An icon of the Texans franchise, J..J. Watt is no longer on the team there after 10 seasons and three Defensive Player of the Year awards.

J.J. Watt Net Worth: $50 Million

After the Texans agreed to his release, Watt, 32, signed a two-year, $28 million deal with the Arizona Cardinals in 2021 — $23 million of it guaranteed. He is a winner of the Walter Payton Man of the Year honor, awarded in 2017 for his work to raise $37 million for people affected by Hurricane Harvey. For his next philanthropic effort, he can turn to his brother, T.J. Watt, for a contribution. The younger Watt, a linebacker with the Pittsburgh Steelers, signed a four-year, $112 million extension on Sept. 9. The deal makes him the highest-paid defensive player in the NFL in terms of annual average value.
